  2. I shockingly fit perfectly in my mom's wedding dress she wore marrying my dad in the 70's. So I am going to wear it for my own wedding in May. Just needs a few adjustments here and there and a professional cleaning since it has been in a box wrapped up for so long preserved. But I am almost the same exact size as my mom my whole life. 

    Needless to say me wearing her wedding dress has my folks an emotional mess. They are loving this.

     

    But it sure saves me a load of having to go around looking for a NEW dress and spending extra money on it that we can use for something else. Although this dress cost a fortune in the 70's for prices then so it's me going retro. It's sort of a Grace Kelly style wedding dress.

      Sorry Nadine, didn't mean to make you cry but I think with mothers it's a good kind of emotion. Since I seen it already with my mom and my future mother in law.

       

      I am just thrilled too since I love retro styles and this is Gracy Kelly esque and I don't have to look around for something new. Since I was pretty clueless as to what to get and it is a pain to get these dresses. Just a few minor adjustments are needed now.

      My mom had such a beautiful dress made for her. Long sleeves, high neck.

      But, she got married on a really hot day and associated that dress with sweltering and got rid of it

      I would have loved to have had even just a piece of the lace

      I just wore a cocktail dress. it was me, I loved it. I was not a girl who always dreamed of a big fancy wedding. I tried on a black sleeveless version and the guy said 'picture this but in white, with sleeves' I said, sounds good.

      Yes, good kind of tears.  It's nice to have something so special for the 'something borrowed'

      PS, save the dress!

      Too bad she got rid of that dress, but then again everyone is different when it comes to saving things. My mom saved everything. I mean she preserved her dress forever wrapped up in some airtight bag and a box. And her mother, my grandmother died when I was in the 4th grade sadly. But my mom saved her mom's cream wedding outfit too and still has that preserved! But no my mom is not going to wear her mom's outfit. lmao We are not going that far. 

       

      Oh this dress will be saved forever though, my mom is big on memories. Photos etc. Just everything.

      I cannot imagine the horror.

  7. Fiance got tickets for us to go to Celtics/Cavs in Boston February 11th. I think I am going to probably act at this game like the girls who saw the Beatles in America for the first time.

    The finest display of athleticism in the world will be in front of me live as well as THE Brad Stevens. Oh and Paul Pierce night. Lebron. Da works.

      Yeah not too bad out here. We got lucky.

      Yeah the weathermen got it wrong it looks like. Wasn't nearly as bad as they were saying.

  9. I changed my mind, giving the C's a shot now in the east. They made the Cavs look old as dirt tonight and Kyrie didn't even have a good game and spent most of the night deferring.  

     

    The IT angle will still be there but I am confident Stevens knows how to shut him down IF Isaiah can make it through the eastern playoffs healthy. I am amazed, holding the Cavs/Warriors to both 88 points this year is pretty difficult to do. And the Celtics missed a lot of shots tonight too.

     

    Cavs are still easily the favorites but if somehow the C's can get Hayward back in some role by years end.......well then it gets real.

      To be fair I did expect the C's to win tonight since they had a rest and the Cavs were on a back to back. But I didn't think it would be so easy.......

       

      I am SHOCKED Boston won so easily without Kyrie having a good shooting night.O.o But for all those who said he was A BALL HOG. He isn't. His shots were not going in tonight so instead of forcing it he got everyone else involved. He didn't try to play hero ball vs. Cleveland when they were covering him so much in this game.

    3. Jules

      Jules

      I just don't know about this Cavs defense though, I mean they got torn the hell up even by Rozier tonight. lmao 

       

      And IT won't help them defensively.

       

      I am a big big fan of defense. Hell the Pacers scored easier on the Celtics.........

      Hope Kevin Love will be okay, he hurt his ankle. He gets hurt way too many times in Boston. But he was not playing well before the injury either, Horford was owning him. Big Love fan but he can be fragile.

       

      Feel bad for IT too since he seems to genuinely still love Boston and the people. Sigh........he was even smiling when it was over.

      @coltsfansince65 I really like John Denver.  I love the west.  Colorado, Wyoming etc. and so did JD.  I didn't get when I was younger, but having been to several western states to hunt I found my reason for existence.  So when I hear John Denver and all of his references to the west it gives me pleasure reminiscing about my time there and my hope to return soon.

  12. Happy New Year to everyone!

  13. If you are a fan of the Di*k Van * show, another cast member besides Mary Tyler Moore has passed. Rose Marie at 94 yesterday. Leaving Van * the only living surviving member. May she RIP!

  14. Got engaged on Christmas Eve!!! We are looking at May or June for the wedding right now or some month when it's not brutally cold lol. I was kinda torn on the idea of "the wedding" but I agreed to it due to him since he really wants to go all out on this. He is sort of the romantic type actually and yes those men still exist in todays age!!! And my family wants a special wedding and his mother/sister wants to do something special so.......well I can do it. His father died when he was in his 20's so I think his mom really wants to do something special for her son and family and I respect this. Most I know want a fun celebration so I can do that for them since I don't mind getting dolled up.

     

    f004465be2ab2ae390fdc2701ba59265--crazy-

     

    Neither one of us has been married before so this is all new to us. We are going to buy a new house together too before the wedding.

     

    I am 36 and Mark is 37. We feel too old for the whole party thing beforehand in terms of something sleazy. I am just going to do something normal with a few girls I know and my sister. And he and his friends are doing something like going to one of the early season Red Sox games and making it a big event. They are mad mad baseball fanatics. He is a Boston sports fan yes but a nice one. He often teases me about coming online for Colts stuff and is like "So whats new with the Colts this week......who got hurt today on the team?". lmao He actually likes Andrew Luck too and hopes he can come back 100%. 

     

    Never thought I would get married my whole life but this is what I want now, you just never do know where life will take you. He is my soulmate and we actually can read each others minds. I met him a few years ago but we were mostly just close friends (who liked each other) until we became exclusive romantically this recent summer. But before we got official, we were talking nearly everyday and everyone just wanted us to get together already lol. It became way way too obvious.

     

    I met him through my first cousin's husband who introduced us a few years ago. And our first time hanging out was seeing a cheesy Adam Sandler movie.

     

    My cousin is my age exactly.......we grew up together and her husband wanted me to meet a guy he worked with. He had a picture of me and my cousin on his phone with me in a Colts scarf. lmao 

     

    Anyway I hope everyone else had a great holiday weekend and Christmas!!!!

     

    Glad the season is almost over too, we deserve to move on and regroup to better times.

      I have to ask, though: will there be a cat involved in your future plans? 

       

      We are currently pet-less if you can believe it. I had a few long time cats who passed. He had a long time Boston Terrier doggy who is gone now. 

       

      My folks would prefer a real baby I think. lmao They don't want a grand cat or grand dog.:lol:

       

      Neither of us has children but we are both very healthy, I was told I could have a kid until well into my 40's but if I did have one I would just have ONE when I am still in my 30's. I would not have more than one at our age. 

       

      We have not closed the idea on a baby someday but he has 3 young nieces and nephews around and my first cousin has a young toddler boy who is a load. My cousin and her husband actually adopted this boy too when he was a newborn and he is just beautiful.

       

      So there are kids around regardless of what happens with us with any of this.

      But a kitten would not be a bad idea either. lmao The idea of a little fluffy calico one has been in my head lately.

      Congratulations!  Having the right partner in life makes all the difference.  Ron and I were in our mid 30's when we married, and it's been the best decision I ever made.   Wishing you both the best!
